Program Update

We're happy to announce that 1 FUR 1 Foundation will extend its grant to Tree House Humane Society through 2016.  Our first grant period in 2014/5 delivered amazing results; we doubled the number of active facilities part of this program and doubled the number of animal assisted activity (AAA) visits being done in the city of Chicago.

Thanks to all of you, who have made this program a success by bringing happiness to the lives of your facility residents, the homeless cats and the tireless volunteers.  It takes many people who love animal and care about people in need to make this program work. And we 'Thank you'!

"Last week Amanda brought two kittens and the residents who attended our 'Cuddle a Kitty' group had huge smiles on their faces... The cats have a calming presence and many of the residents like to hold the cats, give them treats, or play with their toys. Thank you so much for sponsoring this incredible program. It definitely makes a difference..." - Deborah's Place, Chicago

"...our residents love cat therapy and Dani! As you may know Dani has been coming to our facility every other week for some time now. Our residents have said they enjoy spending time with the cats and it's calming effect. They enjoy hearing the interesting stories about the cats who have been adopted from Tree House and they like that it helps to promote Tree House and their cause. Overall cat therapy has been a great addition to our Activities program and we are happy to have Dani as a volunteer here.  Thanks for everything!" - Eden Supportive Living, Chicago
